Read more

Humans are designed for two things: pain & pleasure. So you can either enjoy easy pleasures on the front end: quick serotonin from TV or Instagram, eating the crap that tastes good in the moment, sleeping instead of accomplishing your to-do’s etc, only to then suffer through the pain on the backside.

Seasons of Growth: Seeing the Light at the End of the Tunnel

Read more

Isn’t it interesting how we don’t realize we’re in a season of growth until we get to the other side? In life we’re often thrown these challenges or sometimes seemingly impassable road blocks. Some of them, we attack head on and realize they were nothing more than a necessary bump in the road and we’re […]


How God Shows Up in My Life

The wildest thing happened today. I’m sitting in a public place, having a fabulous morning when I get an unexpected phone call. I answer. And proceed to have a 15-minute conversation that ends with me feeling… bad. To say the least. I’m about to wrap up and leave, struggling to process all the thoughts and […]
